Re: How often does your EBF 5 month old BF? and a question about solids...........

My baby is going to be 6 months in a week and I thought she was interested in eating cereal between 4 and 5 months. I tried it and she seemed to like it but her tummy didn't. I noticed that she was gassier and her sleep habits (which were great before) became disturbed and she started waking more. So for us it wasn't worth starting, I haven't continued on a regular basis, here and there I give her tastes of food though. I formula fed my twins and they were ready for solids much earlier. I read somewhere that EBF babies usually need to wait longer because they're digestive systems aren't ready for solids as early a FF babies.

That's very interesting about the saliva stimulating the differences in milk production.
